My name is Ruby. I live with Barbara and Mick. They're not my real parents, but they tell me what to do, and what to say.

But there are things I won't say. I won't tell them I'm going to hunt for my real parents. I don't say a word about Shadow, who sits on the stairs, or the Wasp Lady I saw. Or that I'm a hunter for lost souls.

I'm going to be with my real family. And I won't let anyone stop me.

Review:

Unique and beautiful . . . a haunting, mesmerising read. -- Rosamund Lupton, author of 'Sister'

Hamer's brilliant storytelling made me read on for fear Ruby's fate depended on it., Grazia

Like her bestselling debut The Girl In the Red Coat, in The Doll Funeral Hamer again excels in weaving a story around a girl who's not quite of this world . . . A slow-burning beauty of a book., Red Magazine

The tremendous momentum of the story gathers pace with every page, hooking you into its strangeness and keeping you hooked to the very last word. -- Rebecca Abrams, Financial Times

An elegiac and uplifting novel., Guardian

Hamer writes with great skill and emotional depth - about the confusions of adolescence and identity, the bond between mothers and daughters and the redemptive power of love., Observer

Compelling . . . A dark and at times heartbreaking story of loss and belonging, in a haunting setting . . . Superb. -- Lucy Atkins, author of 'The Other Child'

Book Description:

The dark and glittering new novel from The Sunday Times Bestselling author Kate Hamer is as gripping as it is gorgeously written - the perfect second book from the author of The Girl in the Red Coat.
